    The problem is we’re misallocating capital, resources and labor on a vast scale. That’s the problem.

    The Green New Deal (GND) is important as a starting point to have a long, long overdue conversation about energy. Specifically: How are we going to eventually transition away from fossil fuels?

    If you have not yet read Part 1: Deconstructing The Green New Deal, available free to all readers, please click here to read it first.

    Done that? Then move onto helping those around you: your friends, your wider family, and your fellow community members.
